Does anybody know if either of the 18-140mm or 55-300mm has better image quality than my current lenses, used on my D5100?   I'm always looking to get the best results I can.   Of course, one nice thing about having the 18-140mm for a "walk around" lens is it's greater "reach", so that I would less frequently have to swap out to the longer lens.  Now, I would not be interested if the image quality would not be as good as the 18-105, which is why I am asking!   Thanks.

I am trying to make a decision about my photography hobby. Been at it for a couple years and have been using a D5100 and a P900. Recently gave up on the P900 cause I could never get the performance and satisfaction in my photos. After selling it I'm considering some new equipment.  My question is would it be better to give up on my D5100  and replace it or keep it and buy a Tamron 150 600 lens? The D5500 is my camera of choice. I can afford to do one but not both. My goal in photography is to...

I will go to seven days hike on west coast trail, BC, Canada. Since I need to carry lots of stuff, I have to make decision on which camera gear I should pack. I have Nikon D600 and a set of lens (24-120 f/4, 20 f/1.8, 35 f/1.8, 50 f/1.8, 60 f/2.8, 85 f/1.8, 70-200 f/4). I think the maximum weight for photography should be less than 1Kg. So far, my favorite  choice is D600 + 20mm. However, I can also borrow my mom's D5100 + 18-105mm. The weight of this combo is within the range and I am pretty...

Hello, I want some advice with what camera should I choose. My options  are Nikon D5100+18-55mm or Pentax K-r+18-55mm+50mm f1.7. It is worth giving my 500D for one of these?

I am a scientist and I work in Antarctica. When I am there, the landscapes are quite stunning. The vast nothingness is overwhelming--being in the middle of an ice sheet with no one around for hundreds of miles is like standing on a frozen white ocean. There are no people, no animals, no plants, no colors, no shadows, no smells--there's nothing. But when I try to capture the extreme nothingness on film, it always ends up looking like a boring picture of nothing. I want to up my photography...

Hey, long time reader, new user here. So, I shoot with a Nikon d600 & am pretty new to shooting full frame. I've found the upgrade from a d5100 to be worth it 10 fold. I shot w/ a simple 50 1.8 for a few months and found it to be a pretty good lens, but a bit limited. I recently purchased a sigma 24-35 f/2 and the images it produces are superb. It's truly a great lens, and the size doesn't really bother me too much. However, it is somewhat limited in terms of range. I do a lot of...

Hello, I got a brand new D750 two days ago and last night I noticed a strange thing. If the AF illumination is set to ON (or to AUTO and it's dark), when even just one focus point is highlighted the whole viewfinder turns red for the time the AF points are lit. I find this to be very distracting as I can't see clearly through the viewfinder. My old D5100 didn't do this, yet I understand they might have different technologies (single LEDs on the D5100 vs a side-lit LCD array in the D750?) The...

Hi Everyone, Recently purchased a Nikon D5100 and although it came with the kit lens (18-55mm AF-S VR II) and having read the manual I'm sure I'm right in saying that it doesn't have a built in motor to run a lens? If so, what lenses should I be looking for which have built in motors? Are there any specific numbers in their lens names etc? Reason I'm asking is that I would like to buy a 2nd hand lens or two just to get used to it, my primary photography is for my fishing so portrait shots and...

I've had my D5100 for four years now and I've decided to turn it on after weeks of not using it then when i went to live mode, it's pitch black. I checked if i had the lens cap on just to be sure but it wasn't there. I took a few photos and still nothing. I've went to the settings and used the lock mirror up for cleaning option and I realized that I couldn't see the sensor. Since I've installed a custom firmware for it in order to take full control of Manual mode while shooting video, I tried...
